This is the UFC 216 live blog for Fabricio Werdum vs. Walt Harris, a heavyweight bout at Saturday night's UFC event at the T-Mobile, Arena in Las Vegas, Nev.

Former UFC champion Werdum will now fight Harris after a back injury forced originally scheduled opponent Derrick Lewis to withdraw at the last minute.

Check out the UFC 216 live blog below.

Round 1: Werdum grabs a single leg early on and he gets Harris down to the canvas. From half guard, Werdum easily transitions into full mount. A brief scramble ends with Werdum locking on an armbar, and this one is already over.

Official result: Fabricio Werdum def. Walt Harris via submission (armbar) at 1:05 of Round 1.
